Model # AP72
The SolarPill provides you with a solar blanket effect for your pool all in one simple pill. This easy to use item gives prevents pool water evaporation and heat loss with an invisible layer of non-toxic, biodegradable film. This item is so easy, just simply place SolarPill in your pool's skimmer and you're done. The SolarPill works like a conventional solar blanket, but without the hassel.
Will this prevent heat loss as well as a eight mill solar blanket? I have solar, and the blanket helps to preserve the heat. If the pill cannot work as well, then all that heat will be lost.
Can I use 2 of these for a 61,000 gallon pool?
Although 2 of these solar pills would be adequate, I would recommend using 3. All pools will experience splash out and evaporation. When you add water to the pool you will be diluting the chemicals inside of the solar pill.

Make sure to put 2 holes in the ball and set it in the skimmer or the pool. It will take about a week to empty out (shake the ball a few times when swimming). It cut my heat loss from 5 degrees to only 2 degrees overnight. I feel that it works better than the other products and is well worth the price.
